Watch Cook County (2009) - Alternative Versions.
Cook County premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX. This
excellent feature from first time writer/director David Pomes provides
a disturbing look at the horrors of Meth addiction which, until now,
has been mostly chronicled - if at all - in documentary films. There
have been many excellent features on the highly cinematic issue of drug
addiction including to name, but a few of the very best, Leaving Las
Vegas, Trainspotting, and Requiem for a Dream. Cook County, while not
quite as good as these classics, falls into their tradition.
One reason that Meth addiction seems to be underreported in the media
and rarely seen on screen is that it is a problem of rural America.
American films are mostly set in urban and suburban areas and often
seem to be barely aware of the existence, much less the difficulties
and complexities of life in rural America.
The story is a powerful one of a family in the complete meltdown of
Meth addiction. The affect of the family crisis on the 6-year-old
little girl are particularly disturbing to watch. The script is
excellent. The characters and their relationships to each other are
well-developed. The acting is excellent - particularly Ryan Donowho is
The scenes of the characters using Meth that show how it affects their
behavior and judgment are compelling and very believable. There are a
few places where elements of the plot are left ambiguous and its
difficult to tell if the confusion is the result of poor editing or
intentional ambiguity. But these flaws are minor and ultimately
This is an important film and it deserves wider distribution since so
many people are unaware of the dangers of Meth addiction.
